Watching through Twitter,I noticed my brother Alec had shown this video of a girl’s first ski jump in one of his talks, as a way to discuss some of the fears we have about trying new things in our own learning.  As I have now shown this video to others myself, I had noticed that at 1:06, the kid sitting beside had said, “The longer you wait, you’ll be more scared.”
    Isn’t this true with so much of the reluctance that we have in learning new things?  When we put it off, it becomes much more daunting and worrisome than had at first glance.  The more others seem to go ahead, the more reluctant many of us become to take part.
    As the girl shows us below, sometimes we have to just jump!  Really, it can be a lot of fun 🙂
